The United Anglican Church is an Anglican continuing church body formed by the merger of The Anglo-Catholic Church in the Americas (ACTA) and the Traditional Episcopal Church (TEC).
...Keeping traditional Anglican values in a non-political, spirit-filled environment...
Greetings in the Name of our Lord. The United Anglican Church (UAC) is dedicated to upholding the Truth of the Lord Jesus Christ as delivered to us in Holy Scripture and maintained inviolate by the One, Holy, Catholic and Apostolic Church of which we are a Province. The UAC was established following the merger of the Traditional Episcopal Church (TEC) and the Anglo-Catholic Church in the Americas (ACTA).
The TEC broght to the merger churches in the United States, South America, Australia, the Philippines, England, and Italy. Laud Hall Seminary, an on-line and approved educational institution, also came into the UAC with the TEC.
ACTA was reactivated as a Province in February, 1997, building upon the foundation of earlier Provinces of the Anglo-Catholic Church in America and of the Anglican Rite Jurisdiction in America (ARJA) of which they were the logical successors. The two bishops remaining in ACTA, The Rt. Rev'd Jose Delgado and the Rt. Rev'd Norman Strauss are in direct succession from two of the original four bishops consecrated in Denver in 1978 (in response to the Episcopal Church's adoption of the extension of the ordained ministry to women and other novel practices--the initial step in the birth of the "Continuing Church") and from the Philippine Independent Catholic Church--itself a constituent part of the international Anglican Communion--which was directly involved also in the birth of ARJA.
While we proclaim ourselves Anglo-Catholic, we lovingly and earnestly remain co-religionist and in fidelity with fellow Anglicans worldwide who follow a more traditionally evangelical path. We believe that the exclusionary attitudes fomented and promulgated by both the "High Church" and "Low Church" factions of the Anglican Communion have been historically and continue to be sinful, promoting of schism and a malignancy affecting the Body of Christ. Our Lord prayed fervently for Unity among His followers and we are dedicated to seeking that Unity among those Provinces rightly claiming His Name and steadfastly adhering to Apostolic Doctrine and Order.
And so, before God, the United Anglican Church makes claim to the full inheritance of the One, Holy, Catholic and Apostolic Church; and with its predecessors, shouts aloud this proclamation to the whole world through the mercy and mediation of Jesus Christ, our Savior, to whom, with the Father and the Holy Ghost, be all honor and glory, world without end.
